Things to Do

You really are spoilt for choice for things to see and do when you stay with us at The Olway Inn. This is an area steeped in history with fantastic scenery and areas to explore on foot, by bike or car all around us.

We are a ten-minute, level walk from the small, historic town of Usk named "The Town of Flowers" and famous for its flower displays for which it has won many gold awards with Britain in Bloom. Enjoy a stroll around the pretty town with its picturesque square and clock tower and attractive riverside walk.

Usk is a great location for a short break, but we have a lot of other attractions within easy distance of The Olway. We've provided you with some ideas and inspiration below, many are close by, but all within a 1 hour drive of The Olway. If you need more information ask a member of staff.
